Iowa FFA Association – Nursery/Landscape
Members within a team each evaluate fleeces for fineness, length and yield, rank fleeces within a group and give reasons for their placing of those classes. Students apply the fundamentals of entomology and develop skills in identifying common insects and their significance to people and agriculture.
Along with identification of both hardwood problej pine species, team members evaluate sites for best management practices based on tes factors, analyze plots for future production, product volume and identify plant species and their effects on timber-forage-wildlife relationships.
They complete one of four practical problems and cooperatively solve a market analysis problem. Management skills and economic principles are applied to agriculture and agribusiness situations as team members complete a written exam and solve farm analysis problems.
Performance classes are evaluated within various equestrian styles. Teams consist of three or four members and the top three scores are tabulated for the final team score. The range evaluation portion of the competition requires members to record the degree of utilization, kind of site, range condition and the predominant decreaser, increaser, and invader plant species while also recommending range management practices.
As a result of event outcomes, members develop a greater understanding of quality production, processing, distribution, ffw, marketing and consumption solvng dairy products.

Teams are composed of three or four members. Team members also rank livestock for breeding purposes, using observed physical characteristics and performance data. Members of land evaluation teams judge sites based on characteristics of the soil and observations of landscape conditions, then recommend land treatments considering factors such as soil characteristics, vegetative conditions and planned use for the site. Contestants identify samples of grasses, forbs, legumes, and folriculture plants and for each indicate length of life, season of growth, origin, and the economic values of the species on wildlife and grazing.
